Perseverance robot rover touches down safely on Martian surface

The Perseverance space probe has landed safely on Mars after successfully passing through the expected “seven minutes of terror” during which it temporarily went out of radio contact with Earth upon entering the thin atmosphere of the Red Planet and descending to the surface, parachuting onto the rocky terrain inside a crater called Jezero, NASA confirmed Thursday.

The rover touched down on Martian soil at 20:56 GMT, according to the US space agency, making it the fifth such vehicle to be positioned to explore Earth’s neighboring planet, with the aim of this mission being to look for signs of past life there.
